GULF'S PLAN DENIED
Last Friday, Bay County
Judge Thomas Ellinor, sitting as
a Circuit Judge In the place of
Judge Russell Bower, denied
Gulfs petition for a temporary In-
junction against the state enforc-
ing the rules In Gulf County, as
the Board attempted to get in the
fishing business, using a provi-
sion clause irotheAmendmenL...
The provi4n allowed the use
of nets for taking fish for govern-
, ment or scientific purposes. Gulf
County proposed to take fish for
government purposes with the
use of nets. The government pur-
poses were: to provide use and:
revenue for the county's giant
freezer, built with the help of the
Apalachee Development Commis-
sion to provide employment in
Gulf County, and to keep citizens
of the county working.
Warren Yeager, chairman of
the Small County Coalition and a,
Gulf County Commissioner, said
"There is no more important func-
tion of government than the well-,
being of its people and securing
jobs for them."

the Wewahitchka Chamber of
Commerce are sponsoring an all-
day July 4th celebration, accord-
ing to Carolyn Husband, chair-
man of the affair.
s Citizens of Wewahitchka and
the vicinity are being invited to
come to Lake Alice Park at 11:00
a.m., CDT, to begin the series of
games and celebration.
Mrs. Husband said the park
will contain several food booths
serving during the day. Games
and fun have been planned for
everyone featuring a watermelon

and many other activities until
At 8:00 p.m., the July 4th
festivities will resume with a fire-
works display on the lakeshore
with the fire department setting
off several pieces of fireworks.
Following the display, a giant
street dance will be provided for
all to attend.
Mrs. Husband is asking indi-
viduals or organizations who wish
to sponsor a booth at the festival
- to contact her in order to make
the proper arrangements.
Port St. Joe will be the place of considera-
ble activity next Tuesday, July 4, as it once
again gears up for a celebration which has
become famous for people in every direction
of the city.
More than the City is involved in the ac-
tivities furnished each year. The Retail Mer-
chants have been active for the past few
years in providing some entertainment and
activities to occupy visitors and residents
alike, to keep them entertained until dark.
When dark falls across the Bay, the city's
giant fireworks show will be the feature of
the evening, attracting an audience which
lines up along Highway 98 from Frank Pate
Park, at the comer of Baltzell and Fifth
Street, to Allen Memorial Way, at the edge of

to be held than just the observance of Inde-
pendence Day. This year, the activities are

centennial--150 years as a state-all of

with the promulgation of the state's first con-
stitution. A state museum and marker still
pay tribute to that activity, near Allen Memo-
The celebration is the second year in a
row the Merchant's Association has expand-
ed on the usual fireworks display, which has
been presented for many years and has
grown each and every year, both in specta-
tors and in the display itself.
BEGINS AT 5:00 P.M.
The celebration activities get underway at
5:00 p.m., at the park. ,
Although the enlarged celebration is
aimed at the kids, this year there will be
something provided for everyone, according
to celebration chairperson, Tonya Nixon.
Adults will be given the opportunity to
enjoy the music of Charles Gaskin's Band,
"Drivin' Home". They may participate in the
"Best Patriotic Dressed" contest, "Best
Dressed Business"; food booths, fun and fel-
lowship. There will be some awards involved
in the contests. Adults who don't feel like
they are 'over-the-hill' may even participate
in the events provided for the children, if

Laine and Hammond, along
with two representatives from the
State of Florida, recently returned
from negotiations with the firm
over state and county economic
incentives in an effort to sell
Florida and Gulf County as the
place for them to locate.
The 40 million dollar package
laid on the table by the state and
county included 14 million dollars
worth of property tax savings over
a 10 year period, as proposed by
the county. The plan, as
explained by, Hammond, calls for
a tax moratorium for the first five
years with the sixth, seventh,
eighth, ninth and tenth years'
property taxes being paid based
upon 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100 per-
cent of their property valuation,

Bay Sewage Offer
Opposition' Petition Would Ask for Clearer
Picture of County-wide Disposal Plant
The City of Mexico Beach is
running into stiff opposition right
from the beginning of looking into
a solution for a sewage' disposal
plan for the Gulf-side community.
The City Commission is act-
Ing on an invitation to join other
Bay County cities-Parker, Calla-
way, Lynn Havens etc.-in a
county-wide disposal system
along with Tyndall' Air Force
Mexico Beach has been invit-
ed by Tyndall to pipe its wastewa-
ter efflunt to the present Tyndall
disposal system where it will ulti-
mately be piped to a new giant
treatment plant at Military Point.
The new plant is being con-
sidered to treat all of Bay
County's sewage. Mexico Beach
has historically been served by
individual septic tank. systems
but has long considered solutions
to their growing population by in-
stallation of a central sewage dis-
posal system. The joint venture
with other Bay County cities
would give the city the benefits of
a central system without the re-
sponsibilities to regulating agen-
cies for its operation.
The investigation into: the
possibilities of providing a sewage
collection system has barely got-
ten off the ground before formida-
ble opposition arose.

leaders of a movement to get
more definite answers about
costs, rates, etc., has turned .a

The Star-Spangled Banner
By Francis Scott Key
Oh, say can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air
Gave proof thro' the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say'does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave?
On the shore, dimly seen thro' the mists of the deep.
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes.
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines on the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner; oh. long may it wave
O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave
And where is that band, who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion.
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution;
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave.
and the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave.
Oh, thus be it ever when free men shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war's desolation;
Blest with victr'y and peace, may the Heav'n-rescued land
Praise the Pow'r that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just;
And this be our motto: "In God is our tnrust!"
And the Star-spangled Banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Cathy and Jo Blair have been
sisters for a long time. A very long,
time! My Indian ancestors would,
say many moons have passed
since those two started down
life's road-and many winters
and a couple of light.years . .:
. So you could say I was mildly
shocked, pleased mind you, but
shocked nevertheless when Cathy
announced that Jo Blair was go-
ing to have a baby. In my momen-
tarily dazed condition I made the
social faux pas of the year-
before I squealed and jumped up
and down, I let slip out, "Isn't
Joby a little long in the tooth to
be having babies?"
Cathy was too busy squealing,
and jumping up and down to pay
any attention to what I was say-,
ing. -Did I tell you those sisters
are very close? You'd ,think ,we
were expecting. As it turned out,
we near 'bout were.

Jo Blair and I' also go back a
: long way. She is, without a
doubt, one of my all time favorite
people. She was two years old
when I first laid eyes on her. I'll
never forget her sitting in that
maple wood high 'chair with a
whole chicken, lima beans, apple-
sauce, stuffed bell peppers, sweet
corn, rice and gravy, fried green
tomatoes, stewed okra, rolls and
iced tea bending that tray down,
almost into her little lap. What a
smile! I went back night after
night that first summer just to
'watch her eat. I have been in love
with Jo Blair Cotham since 1966.
I'm so proud for her today. I'm as
excited as all "get out". I wish for

baby things too far ...
Cathy has been in and out of
maternity shops for six months.

A Hard Time
THE SENATE DID THE right thing when they denied Doctor
Henry Foster as Surgeon General of the United States., Their de-
cision, we believe, was correct not because Dr. Foster was a bad
doctor or would fill the position inadequately or be unfaithful to
the President who nominated him in the first place.
His rejection was the proper action for the Senate to take be-
cause of the sharp division over the position; not the man cho-
sen to fill it. Abortion is the hot subject in this nation right now
and Dr. Foster's position and past practice with abortion didn't
suit the antis any more than the opposite position or leaning
would satisfy the pros.
BOTH PHILOSOPHIES ARE adamant in their positions. The
antis are whole-heartedly against abortion in any form. They
consider it an act of murder; This writer considers it an act of
murder. They would not even perpetuate the practice of abortion
with a Surgeon General who offered tacit approval of favoring
the act by virtue of the fact that he was not vehemently against
Dr. Foster admitted to the fact that he performed about three
dozen medical abortions as a part of his medical career. The an-
tis couldn't have that! The nation couldn't put up with 4the divi-
siveness it would cause-witness Dr. Jocelyn Elders' tenure at
the post. Most people were sympathetic with what she was .try-
ing to accomplish; they were just chagrined by the manner in
which: she was trying to .accomplish it. So was the President, in
THE SURGEON GENERAL-if we shoutild have one-should
exist for the purpose of being a national health doctor. He
should advise on communicable diseases, vaccinations, proper
sanitation, public health and the like. He has no business get-
ting involved: with volatile political questions Which can serve
only to erode his status as an example of the healing powers of
the medical world.
President Clinton seems to be ha-ing a 'hard time getting
Congress to accept a nominee-any nominee. We would advise
him to make the next selection based on medical reasons; not to
pay a political debt.
An Old Ledger Sheet ProvidesA Walk Down Memory Lane
THIS ISN'T AN advertise-
ment, you understand. It Is a tale
of something which happened a
long time ago, and the record of it
was brought back to me the other
day by Gil Williams, the genial
fellow who locks and unlocks the
door down at First Union Bank.
Gil happens also to be a good
friend and the other day we
passed each other in the normal
activities of our mutual days and
Gil greeted me with, "I have some-
thihg down at the bank which I
'know you will find Interesting..
Well, since the thing which
would interest me most at any-
body's bank is free samples of
$10,000 dollar bills, I decided to
drop by and see what it was
which should be of such an inter-
est to me.
It's always a treat to me to
visit any bank on the occasions
when I don't have to ask to bor-
row some money or pay for some

what is more likely make
By Wesley Ramsey
some "arrangements" on a note
which is due at a time when I
don't have the money to pay
something on it.
WELL, TO MAKE a long tale
short, I went by the bank and
walked right in the main "may I
please have a loan because I'm
broke" room and sat down Just'
like I did it every day.
Gil leaned back in his chair,
just like all bankers do when they
are preparing that "I don't think
we can lend quite as much as a
king's ransom with no more col-
latteral than you have offered"
and said something quite differ-
ent! It took me by such surprise, I
didn't hear him the first time he
said it. So, he said once more, "I
have something 50 years old I1
want to show you."
I knew no bank would allow a
note to lay uncollected for .50
years, so my Interest was piqued.
I listened closer, in other words.
YOU CAN IMAGINE my inter-
est when Gil shoved a yellowed
ledger across his desk which had
recorded where I had purchased
a 1941 Dodge automobile 50
years ago! The loan for some
$450 had been made and entered
on a ledger page in handwriting,
with each payment recorded in
the same manner.
I had made six payments of
$54.00 and then paid off the bal-
I didn't remember the trans-
action which made the loan, but'I
did remember the automobile. It
was a fine looking car but unfor-
tunately the motor was shot; a lit-
tle fact I didn't find out about un-
til some few months later.
I have never purchased a
used car since!
Back in the '40's and early
'50's, that sort of thing could hap-
pen to you and after several at-
tempts to purchase a good used
car, I vowed never to buy another
after my experience-for the third
time-with the purchase of the
MY FIRST EXPERIENCE
was with with a 1934 Ford sedan,
which I had to tow from where I
bought it to my home. I should
have known better than to buy it!
But, it was all right that I had a
hard time getting it started; the
brakes were locked and it
couldn't move anyhlow.
My next venture was a 1935
sporty-looking Ford coupe con-
vertible, w(th wire-spoked wheels.
You talk about a boat being a
hole in the water to pour money!
It couldn't be any worse than that
Then came a succession of
used and abused chariots on
wheels after that. Two of those ve-
hicles were favorites of mine.
4 There was a 1929 restored Model
A. That was in the days before re-
storing meant it was a valuable
antique. In the 40's, it was just
wheels and was in big demand.
One of my other favorites was a
1949 Lincoln which had been in a
wreck. It was another good way to
spend money, but it wasn't the
car's fault. It was too advanced
GIL'S RECOVERED ledger
sheet started all these and other
memories rolling over in.my head,
as we talked abo6t the ledger
book with its various entries he
had discovered while storing and
sorting out some old bank
One person had borrowed
$100.00 and set up repayment on
a monthly basis. Banks won't
lend $100.00 any more, no mat-
ter if you do happen to need it. It
costs them more in paperwork
than they will make on the loan.
Banks don't keep records irn a
ledger book any more, either,
with entries made by hand with
pen and ink.
It was a nice walk through
memory lane, Gil. I'm Just glad I
don't have to finance a $450 au-
tomobile any more and if I did. I
probably wouldn't want the car I
could buy for $450.

County Commissioners during
their special meeting Thursday
Their low bid of $79,096.75

the county to build the park. The

Sheriffs Dept. Budget
By a vote of three to two, the
Board decided to commit up to
$55,000 to balance the Gulf
County Sheriffs Department bud-
get by the end of the fiscal year.
Chairman Hammond told the
Board the county auditors had
revealed the Sheriffs Department
budget to be $62,181 in the red.
Noting that $7,000 remained in
the.law enforcement agency's con-
tingency fund which could be
transferred to cover part of the
deficit, the budget would still be
$55,000 In arrears.
Hammond passed the chair to
Vice Chairman Nathan Peters, Jr.
and made the motion to help bal-
ance the Sheriffs Department
budget up to the $55,000 project-
ed differential. He explained that
Gulf' County Sheriff Frank
McKeithen had nothing to do with
the budget woes, stating that the
auditors' report indicated that
Interim Sheriff James Coats had.
overspent the budget during his
appointed stay as sheriff and cur-
rent Sheriff McKelthen should not,
have to bear the brunt of econom-_
ic problems which he was not

retorted that other constitutional
officers in the courthouse had to
live within their budgets .and he
felt adding to the Sheriffs
Department budget had to stop
somewhere. He added, "I think
Sheriff McKeithen is doing a good
job for the county."
After further discussion
Commissioners Jessie Armstrong
and Traylor voted against the
motion while Yeager, Peters and
Hammond gave their support.

Two years ago, my infant son
died very suddenly of pneumonia.'
My husband and I. tried to help
each other in grieving, but instead
we fought all the time. We are
now divorced and my husband
has remarried. I heard recently
from my former mother-in-law
that my husband's new wife is
expecting a child. When I heard
the news,- I felt furious that my
former husband is just going on
with his life, having other chil- ,
dren, as if our child never existed.
I feel angry all the -time, and
whenever I see a child the age of
my son, I just want to scream or
smash something. Am I crazy?
Angry in St. Joe
You are definitely not crazy.
You-are however, locked in a griev-
ing process, and everyone grieves
differently. You see your :former
husband carrying on with his life,
in your words, "as if our child
never existed." .He may, however
be responding to his grief by
avoiding it. Society still places
much' pressure on men not to
show emotion, while allowing
women to be relatively free with
their emotions. Hence, he may be
responding by a flurry of activity
that adds up to being too busy to
think about his problems. The
anger you are feeling is okay, as
long as it doesn't keep you from
things you have to do (i.e., work-
ing, taking care of yourself, relat-
ing to other people.)
You've made a very good start'
by writing to this column. A pro-
fessional counselor could help,
you deal with your grief issues in
depth. Also, there are many good
groups for people who have lost
children or who have. divorced.
Check -and see if there is some-
thing available in your area.

June and July are months
when grass is growing at its full
potential. Mowing is not only a
chore but a necessary mainte-
nance practice. To comply with.
our conservation effort to reduce
the number of bagged clippings
going to landfills by letting grass
clippings lay in place, it may be
necessary to mow as frequently
as every five days. The smaller
the clippings, the more easily
they filter back into the lawn and
become unnoticeable. These are
also months to watch for pests.
When an area in the lawn be-
-gins to yellow, react Don't just ig-
nore ill Usually the problem is ei-
ther one of an insect or a disease.
A simple diagnostic test is to mix
two tablespoons of any soap into
two gallons of water (but don't
mix so vigorously as to form
suds) and then pour this over, two
square feet of grass right at the
edge of where yellow turns green.
Wait a few minutes. If an insect is
involved with the problem, they'll
soon climb to the top of the grass
to get away from the soap.
Chinch bugs. mole crickets and
caterpillars are the pests for
which to look. If any of those
come' up, treat with an insecti-
cide. Cheek with local garden
centers or your County Extension
Service for what they 'have that
would work (diazinon and durs-
ban are commonly used). If no in-
sect is observed, the yellowing is
due to something else and an in-
secticide will not help. It could be
a burn from using a weed killer
or a, problem with water (too
much 'or too little) but to play it
safe, spray for diseases. Daconil
is a commonly used fungicide
that controls a large number/of
- diseases on turf.
When spraying with an insec-
ticide or fungicide don't treat the
whole yard Help reduce needless
chemical application to our envi-
ronment. Treat only the 'affected
area and a ten feet border around
'it. Mow a day or two before treat-

at low rates) or do not fertilize at
all'in the summer. Studies have
shown that grasses such as St.
Augustine and Bahia can go the
entire summer with no fertilizer if
clippings are allowed to fall back
to continue providing slow release
nutrition to the grass. It has also
been demonstrated by eliminating
those high analysis fertilizers in
the summer, which produce a
"bright green" appearance, pests,
such as .grey leaf spot, chinch
bugs and lawn caterpillars, can
be reduced. ,
Mole crickets have laid their
eggs now and those eggs will soon
be hatching. If there was a prob-
lem with these insects in the lawn
this time last year, now is the
time to try to reduce their num-
ber by killing those young hatch-
lings before they become adults.:
To do this, apply a granular ap-
plication of a product called ofta-
nol. Water it immediately (within
a half hour of applying), and this
should stay in the soil for the
next 2-3 months, killing all young
crickets as they hatch. Note that
in the past this treatment was
recommended for May. Studies'
have shown that the hatch-out
cycles for this area are a little lat-
er than once thought. It is, there-
fore, suggested that most effective
application period for the residual
product oflanol is June through
mid July. Oftanol is only used
one a year for mole cricket con-
trosihnce it 'gives very 'little con-
trol to large crickets and works
best on those that have only re-

Rabies-A Terrible Way to Die!
Threat to Pets and Humans Exploding in Gulf County, State
You thought AIDS was a ter-
rible disease and almost always
fatal? A disease to be shied away
from and contact to be avoided at
all costs? So is rabies It is a
world-wide problem and usually
it is too late to save a person's life
by giving him treatment after he
shows symptoms of the disease.
Rabies has been with us for
hundreds of years. It is a much-
feared Infection in most of the
world and is spread through con-
tact or a bite from an infected an-
Rabies still kills a human be-
ing every 10 minutes throughout
the world, making it one of the
more prevalent and deadly dis-
eases known to man.
RABIES ON RISE IN GULF
Doug Kent, Environmental
Manager of the Gulf County
Health Department, told the Ro-
tary Club Thursday that rabies is
on the rise, dramatically, in Gulf
and other northwest Florida
counties. "Rabies is especially on
the increase among cats and wild
The speaker said that the dis-
ease's increase has now reached
the point where one of six wild
animals his department tests Is a
carrier of the virus and could
cause rabies in a human if he
comes in contact with it.
"Anyone can be made to test
positive who handles, or comes in
contact with saliva, from an in-
fected wild animal, especially if
he has been bitten," Kent said.
Last year an area incident
happened in Bay County which
caused the Gulf County Board of
Health to hunt down 65 resi-
dents, testing them and giving
the series of qhots, protecting
them from the disease. A child
found a baby racoon in the Cove
area and in passing the animal
around, 65 Gulf County people
were found to have come in con-
tact with the animal.
The animal showed no signs
of being infected with rabies.
The Health Department In-
sisted on testing the animal once
they learned of the incident and
found it to be a carrier of the dis-
ease. Everyone who had come in
contact with the animal had to be
examined and treated.
FIVE EXPENSIVE SHOTS
Treatment consists of a series
of five shots costing from $1,000
to $3,000 for the series.
Kent cautioned that all ani-
mals which are carrying the dis-
ease don't necessarily show
symptoms of being rabid. "Cer-
tainly if a wild or domesticated
animal of any kind is salivating
freely; shows aggressive behavior;
in the case of wild animals dis-
plays no fear of man or is acting
erratically, he is a good prospect
to suspect rabies and should be
isolated and tested by authori-
ties," Kent said.
'The baby racoon found in
Bay County showed no indica-
tions of having the disease, but It
tested positive," he repeated.
Treatment should begin as
quickly as possible, after expo-
sure, since Incubation of the dis-
ease is only 25 days; then it's too
lately After a human comes down
with rabies, it almost invariably
causes his death.
RABIES ON RISE IN DOGS
Kent said the number of dogs
found to test positive is increas-
ing, too. He said the number of
dogs testing positive last year in
Gulf County was the highest
number In 35 years.
He urged keeping pets inocu-
lated against the disease in the
warm months of the year, but
cautioned it is active all year
round even in the frozen
north The next best way to avoid
the deadly disease is to avoid
handling wild animals of any
kind--especially racoons and fox-

During two-a-day practices
as sofne of us were having .near
death experiences he would say,
"This is life, this is life. Life is a

to face thus far.
We may have lost a few

and several District, area, aind re-
gional championships as well. We
always played with pride. We
were often smaller in number and
size than many. we played.. But a
winning attitude was drilled in us,
that the big guys "put their pants
on the same way you" do".' We
were from a sleepy, little Paper
Mill town, but we learned to play
hard, smart and big. It was spe-
cial-we beat Chipley twice physi-
cally, and once on the scoreboard
when it really counted in the
playoffs. Injuries cost us a state
championship. But I will never
forget that year.
I will -also never" forget that
before it was fashionable to be a
student/athlete we were expected
to be, so. Playing ball was never
an' excuse for sloppy school work.
I remember word getting back to
Coach that some of us had not
only done poorly but acted disre-
spectful in class. All I can tell you
is that we paid dearly for it in
practice that day and were told at
the end of practice that he had
better not hear of such ever'
again. From a stage of near un-
consciousness, most of us got the
I also remember that Coach
got me involved in Fellowship of
Christian Athletes. Coach's ath-
letic prowess never diminished

couraged both athletic discipline
and Christian discipleship. I have
come to understand that disci-
pline and discipleship not only-

Tough Talk Sent Capitol
Out to Schools to
Get Three Years to Improve Product
or Face Tough Competition
ACCOUNTABLE SCHOOLS? .... MAYBE
Florida didn't get charter schools, a voucher system, or smaller class
sizes this year, but the state cabinet was expected earlier this week to
approve a tougher accountability plan that could be the first step to turn-
ing around failing public school systems.
The proposal-groomed by Education Commissioner Frank Brogan
and Lt. Gov. Buddy MacKay--would give failing systems. three years to
shape up or face wholesale replacement of staff and/or a parent-choice
program allowing them to send their kids to another school.
It's not as good as charter schools which would operate under con-
tract to but outside the rules of the local school district or the voucher
system which would allow students to take their tax money to the public
or private school of theirparents' choice.
The difference is the accountability plan leaves the sanctions up to
the local school boards which-most Floridians now. believe-have been
more effective spending tax money than improving education.; Such an
assessment is. a little unfair because public school teachers were asked to
be everything from social worker to police officer and still teach the basic
educational skills needed to succeed in life.
This plan is.a step back to basics and could become a springboard for
a new era in public education. It is based on the assumption the local
school board-given the support and leeway it needs-can make better
decisions for their kids than legislators or Florida Cabinet members sit-
ting as the State Board of Education.
The key is new tougher tests that would be compared to "world class"
standards and be used to judge the effectiveness of the Individual
schools. Of course, the raw test scores aren't to be the only criterion.
Whether a school's tests show improvement will get just as much atten-
tion under the plan and lagging school districts will get three years of
special financial -help. ,
But ultimately (maybe), schools with poor. results after three years of
special help and freedom to try what they deem best will be held account-
Now about 50 percent of the public school graduates require remedi-
al studies when they go on to college because they lack the basics. It is
being said by our criticS that U. S. public schools turn out the greatest
number of dummies. with the highest self esteem than any of the Indus-
trialized countries of the world. '
This new accountability drive, the latest of many in the past, is per-
haps the last one a growing disturbed public is going to allow before
insisting on charter schools and a voucher system that will bring real
competition to public schools.
In fact, the three years it will take to be tested is about as long as
Democratic Gov. Lawton Chiles will have left in office. You may recall that
Republican candidate Jeb Bush-narrowly defeated by Chiles-had char-
ter schools and a tax voucher system as centerpieces in his campaign.
You can expect Chiles to drag his feet all the way.
It's likely the Florida Legislature wilFlpass charter schools the next
time around. The bill got whopping favorable votes in this year's regular
session; but died mainly for lack of time to iron out the details.

Here's the Capitol News Round-up
NET BAN AND FREEDOM DAY:-State officials and average citizens
all over Florida are keeping their fingers crossed that no violence breaks
out on the upcoming Independence Day weekend when a net ban on
coastal commercial fishing begins.
Gov. Lawton Chiles said he is not expecting or looking for trouble, but
he will play it safe. A plan designed to bring a peaceful acceptance of the
ban includes calling out the national guard if necessary, but he had not
put them oh standby alert early this week.
Fishing industry leaders are advising fishermen-no matter how dis-
appointed they are with the net ban-to, also avoid violence.
The ban start-up Saturday is complicated by legal maneuvers of some
coastal county commissions to keep their local fishermen working under
an exception in the net ban law that says netting will still be allowed for
"scientific research and governmental purposes."
Franklin, kWakulla and Gulf Counties have declared employment of
their fishermen-many of them lifelong professionals-as a government
purpose and are "contracting" netters to bring their catches to them at
The Florida Marine Patrol plans to have two officers per patrol boat'
work 12-hour shifts starting Saturday. If they find netters, they have
Instnructions to cite them to appear in court and order themnto leave the
water with their nets. They will confiscate the fish caught in the nets, but
will not seize the nets.
Organized Fishermen of Florida Chief Jerry Sansom said he didn't
expect many netters were going to challenge the ban and. it would be
counter-productive, but the public and state officials should realize it is
an emotional issue.
He can say that again. Listen to Johnny Clopton, a fourth generation
commercial fishermen of Pensacola:
"You pull the heart and soul out of people. I feel like dirt and trash to
the state of Florida."
Or to Alex Nichols, 62, veteran Wakilla County fisherman:
"We're going to fish until they put us in jail."
OUSTED TOWEY BACK ON PAYROLL: Former Health and
Rehabilitative Secretary Jim Towey is back on two state payrolls on a,
